I have court ordered full custody and child support for my 5 year old son. His father hasn't paid child support in 3 years and has never been involved in his life. I honestly couldn't even say where he is. My fiancée wants to adopt my son when we get married. But I don't know what the laws are. My son has my last name and his father isn't on the birth certificate. I do have a signed and notarized Acknowledgment of Paternity. What would we have to do for him to adopt him.
